Lena Waithe, like many other celebrities from the Hollywood scene, has dealt with trolls in the past. But fortunately for the writer of Master Of None – the series created by Aziz Ansari -, Lena hasn’t dealt with that much social media criticism.
During a chat with a reporter from BET.com, the Emmy Award winner admitted that, for the most part, her fans and other users on Twitter typically engage in polite and pleasant exchanges.
Whenever someone discusses a political sentiment with her, an issue in which the other person is incredibly passionate, Lena said she merely tells them “it’s all good,” and she respects their opinion.
When speaking with the journalist, Lena said it’s crucial for her to foster an environment where everyone can enjoy themselves, and to spread positivity and love is her fundamental goal.
3 of the hi five. Last night was unforgettable. #readyplayerone is quite lit. Can’t wait for y’all to see it March 29th. I’m sneaking into some theaters. If I sit next to you let me get a nacho!

We’re glad Lena doesn’t have to deal with many trolls on social media platforms. Too bad that wasn’t the case for her cohort, Aziz, who found himself in serious trouble after being accused of sexual misconduct by an anonymous woman.
Fans will remember that Aziz skipped out on the Awards ceremony where he was supposed to receive yet another honor in commemoration for his role in the creation of Master Of None.
One of his friends, Adam Scott, dished on the accusations on the red carpet recently. Or rather, he managed to stay relatively silent on the matter, admitting to reporters that he preferred to say things which could not be misconstrued.
Adam told a reporter, “Aziz is a great guy, and he’s doing well, how about that?” In addition to Scott, Lena defended Aziz in the press as well; she emphasized the need for a code of conduct for people to abide by.
